Coffee and Cards

Here's one of the cards we made at my Coffee and Cards Stamp Camp last week.  I knew that I would use the Coffee Break Suite often since Starbuck's gift cards are the teacher gift of choice in our house.  I think I'll be referring to Garden Green as Starbuck's Green from now on....but I guess that would be copyright infringement or something:)

Got the idea for this card above from a card in the 2017-18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog on page 80.  Do you see the 4 different DSP pieces in the sample below?

Love what you see and think you'll use this suite as much as me?  Place an order today via my online store!

When life gives you lemons...

...chuck them right back! 

Rewind to the end of June when it seemed like I just couldn't catch a break...broken air conditioning in my car AND at home with a heatwave, the pool not working so couldn't cool off there, basement flooding (with the sewer back-up no less...yuck!), rain after each time we stained part of the deck (which is a long process since we have A LOT of deck) and gallbladder surgery (that had quite a longer recovery time than I anticipated).   I made this canvas art by "case-ing" a card in the new 2017-18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog on page 90 to channel my frustrations into something creative.  This photo does not do Lemon Lime Twist justice!  It's a new In Color and the one that I thought I would never really use, but it has become a favorite color of mine!
